How We Collect and Use Information.
- Information Collected Automatically When Visiting the Site. We use “cookies” to collect Anonymous Information about visitors to the Site. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to identify that you’ve logged in to the Site and to tell us how and when you interact with our Site.

Pages within the Site and our e-mails may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags and single-pixel gifs) that permit us, for example, to count users who have visited those pages or opened an e-mail and for other related Site statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain content and verifying system and server integrity). This information is used to enable more accurate reporting, improve the effectiveness of our marketing, and improve the Site.
- Anonymous Information Generally. We may create Anonymous Information records from Personal Information by excluding information (such as your name) that would otherwise make such data personally identifiable to you. We may use Anonymous Information at our discretion and for any purpose.

In circumstances where we would like to use Personal Information, such as a name which may identify you, we will not do so unless we have your permission.

- Processing Your Data. If you provide us personal data to determine the suitability of products or services referenced on the Site or to register an account we will lawfully process your personal data to perform a contract with you or take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract. We internally process your personal data for our legitimate business interests, like improving Beezwax products and services, in a manner that does not outweigh your fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we will use your personal data for direct marketing, in which case you have the right to object to direct marketing.
- Categories of Recipients of Your Personal Data. We employ third-party service providers to administer and provide services on our behalf (including, but not limited to, a cloud service provider) who may need your personal data to provide services for us. These third-party service providers are restricted from using your personal data for any purpose other than to provide the services requested by Beezwax.
- Data Subject Rights. The GDPR provides certain rights for individuals. You may request information about: the purpose of processing; the categories of personal data concerned; third parties that may have received your personal data from Beezwax; the source of your personal data (if you didn’t provide it directly to Beezwax); and how long your personal data will be stored. You have a right to correct your personal data record maintained by Beezwax if it is inaccurate. Subject to certain exceptions, you may request that the Beezwax erase your personal data or cease processing your personal data. You have the right to receive, or transmit to another controller, personal data concerning you that you have submitted to Beezwax. Beezwax will provide reasonable access to your personal data at no cost upon request and if access cannot be provided within a reasonable time frame, Beezwax will provide you with a date when the information will be provided. If for some reason access is denied, Beezwax will provide an explanation as to why access has been denied. In many countries, you have a right to lodge a complaint with the appropriate data protection authority if you have concerns about how Beezwax processes your personal data.
- Transferring Personal Data from the EU to the US. The information Beezwax collects from you is processed in the United States. The United States has not sought, nor received, a finding of “adequacy” from the European Union under Article 45 of the GDPR. Beezwax relies on derogations for specific situations as set forth in Article 49 of the GDPR. In particular, Beezwax collects and transfers to the U.S. personal data only: with your consent; to perform a contract with you; or to fulfill a compelling legitimate interest of Beezwax when your rights and freedoms are not overriding.
- Data Storage and Retention. Your personal data is stored by Beezwax on its servers, and on the servers of the cloud-based database management services the Beezwax engages, located in the United States. Beezwax retains data for the duration of your business relationship with Beezwax and for a period of time thereafter to allow you to recover account information and to satisfy legal requirements. For more information on where and how long your personal data is stored, and for more information on your rights of erasure and portability, please contact us at email@example.com.
